* VIEW OUR 3D TOUR * Chants Cottage is situated in a beautiful rural location just 5 miles west of Exeter City centre, which provides an extensive range of facilities and transport links to the rest of the country. The property lies between the villages of Tedburn St Mary and Whitestone and has easy access to the A30 (1.5 miles) which connects to the M5 motorway. The boundary of Dartmoor National Park is within 5 miles to the south-west too with its stunning scenery
Externally the property sits proudly within its own surrounding grounds and benefits from incredible views from Exeter in the east right across to Dartmoor to the west. There are a range of useful outbuildings and storage sheds as well as a converted stable block previously used as AirBnb accommodation. The surrounding fields provide further potential (STP) for expanding this business should the new owners wish to further their passive income. There is also a detached office ‘pod’ that can be used for anyone who works from home. The property is approached by a gravel drive opening to a parking area for multiple vehicles with a turning circle/roundabout formed around an impressive oak tree creating an idyllic picture of this beautiful rural life. The surroundings fields extend to over 6 acres.
The Grade II Listed detached cottage itself originally dates from the late 17th century although was extended at some point within the 19th century. Its main features are a thatched roof, exposed beams and a large fireplace with wood burning stove. The property has been significantly upgraded over recent years with new windows, electrics, oil boiler and more and with further upgrades to the grounds and the newly converted stable accommodation.
The main accommodation includes three good sized bedrooms and an upstairs bathroom, with a living room with wood-burning stove, a dual aspect dining room and a spacious kitchen all on the ground floor. There is potential (STP) to move the kitchen into the dining room (to create a very impressive kitchen diner!), leaving space internally for a boot-room/utility entrance, and gain a play room or study all without extending. There is oil fired central heating throughout.
Mains water, mains electricity, private drainage, oil central heating, LPG gas for hob, Superfast Rural Broadband (Up to 60mbps)
